Do you have difficulty sleeping?
Can’t get to sleep, waken too early, broken sleep?
Whatever your age, sleep problems can ruin your daily life.

Most adults have experienced insomnia or sleeplessness at one time or another in their lives. An estimated 30%-50% of the general population are affected by insomnia, and 10% have chronic insomnia.

What is Insomnia?

Insomnia is a symptom, not a stand-alone diagnosis or a disease. By definition, insomnia:
  • · affects all age groups
  • · in adults, affects women more than men AND its incidence increases with age; "difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep, or both"
  • · may be due to inadequate quality or quantity of sleep.

Insomnia is not defined by a specific number of hours of sleep that a person gets, since individuals vary widely in their sleep needs and practices. Although most of us know what insomnia is and how we feel and perform after one or more sleepless nights, few seek medical advice. Many people remain unaware of the behavioural and psychological options available to treat insomnia.

Insomnia is generally classified based on the duration of the problem. Not everyone agrees on one definition, but generally:
  • · symptoms lasting less than one week are classified as transient insomnia,
  • · symptoms between one to three weeks are classified as short-term insomnia, and
  • · those longer than three weeks are classified as chronic insomnia.
